1 medium, finely chopped

Korma paste

1½ tbs


1000 g, roasted

Canned borlotti beans, rinsed, drained

230 g, (1 x 400g can)


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add curry paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant.

SERVING SUGGESTION: Chopped fresh coriander and wholegrain bread (contains gluten). TIPS: Korma curry paste is a mild Indian-style curry paste. Find it in the Asian or Indian food section of most supermarkets. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 2 months. Reheat soup in the microwave or in a saucepan on the stovetop, adding a little extra water if too thick. Add it: ¼ cup (60ml) light coconut milk to soup in Step 3. Swap it: Korma curry paste for Thai red curry paste.
